Chris
gained his motorsport licence at 21 and started out by competing in UK Club championships.

During 2000 and 2001 Chris competed in the European Belcar GT Championship driving a Porsche 993 RSR. This involved endurance racing against much more experienced drivers, butChris rose to the challenge and produced some excellent results. At the end of 2001 Chris entered a Porsche GT3 in the last three rounds of the Porsche Cup GB Championship and in his third race finished in 3rd place at Silverstone.

Porsche RSR In 2002 Chris had a very successful season driving in the Porsche Open Series driving a Porsche 993 RSR in Class 2. Out of the six rounds competed in, he achieved six pole positions and four 1st place finishes. He was the most successful driver of the season.

2003 saw Chris planning a British GT Cup campaign alongside Patrick Pearce in a Porsche GT3, however a testing accident just weeks before the beginning of the season put these plans on hold.


Last season Chris campaigned in the Michelin Porsche Club Championship. He had an extremely strong start and was leading Class 1 for the majority of the season. However his campaign dominance was halted at Brands Hatch in September, when debris punctured his radiator during the race, blowing the head gasket. This was followed by an accident at Spa Francorchamps in qualifying - the lap after clinching pole.

For the 2005 race season Chris is competing in the SEAT Cupra Championship. This will be the first time he's raced a front-wheel drive car and it looks set to be a closely fought Championship. Chris is looking forward to the new challenges the SEAT Cupra Championship will bring and being involved in the high profile TOCA arena.
